Decent little place in Woodbridge. Not the greatest or freshest Sushi. Servers were the best part of the visit and they weren't even great. The only drawback as well is that when you order a number of things they always tend to forget a couple of your orders and they never end up coming.

We've visited Akita numerous times and with every single visit we can probably point out a few things we've... more

The sushi tasted stale and unfresh, the waitresses were apathetic, the atmosphere is over-the-top dark and the environment was simply as distasteful as the food itself. Would not recommend; neither for the price (which is steep), the food (I had to go to the washroom to avoid puking), and the service.

Sorry but this place use to be so good when it first opened. The service is not good, and when you order you feel like your bothering them lol. I don't think I'll be back here, it's to bad because I did like it at first.

This place is just meh. I've definitely had better sushi. I feel like I'm always being rushed here and the waitress' are quite rude.

The quality of the food isn't the greatest. I feel as if most of the time they warm up left overs. For me it's not worth the drive (I live in Toronto), I can find better quality sushi in Toronto.

I'm also not very fond of the 10% service charge that we're... more

If you are looking for good sushi/ good service/ good experience, do not come here!
The sushi is honestly gross, the menu is so limited and average. Everything is plated with absolutely no effort, and most disappointing; the wait staff barely speak English, extremely annoying when you have to ask for water 20 times, either that or they simply don't care. For the price of Akita, there's MUCH... more

Decent sushi place. Been several times, mostly cause my girlfriend loves it, but she's too picky to have a decent opinion on food. I think they were better before they expanded their menu to add common things like chicken wings and other western fast food dishes. Great place when they have their end of summer/winter sale which brings the AYCE price down by 4$. But I've definitely had better,... more

I didn't eat from their AYCE menu this time (I have in the past, a few years ago, but it's been a long time so I don't think it's relevant) , so my review is not regarding that. I ordered the shrimp tempura roll and sushi pizza, both of which were priced reasonably in that their prices are on par with the other sushi restaurants I frequent. Their decor was modern and clean - I really liked it.

Dined here a second time within a week and downgrading my rating to 3 stars. Came during weekend on-peak dinner hour. Service was still prompt so that was good. Food was just okay though. Ordered another salmon entree, this time the salmon & vegetable teriyaki. Salmon was again very thinly sliced as last time and bordering dry. I did not like that my bed of vegetable teriyaki was completely... more

Standard AYCE sushi. Service is fast and servers were nice.

Only complaint is that because my boyfriend and I went to eat late at night, the food did not taste fresh. Also, 10% gratituity was added onto the bill.

Not the worst, not the best.

Pros:
- Fast service
- Huge selection (more so at dinner, but you're paying the difference)
- Butterfly cheese (Nom, so good)

Cons:
- They automatically add 10% tip to the bill (so don't add on top of that!)
- The bill is given to you right after you order ice cream, which i think is kind of rude

Overall, I would say that it's a pretty standard AYCE Japanese... more

Meh.

Typical AYCE sushi place. Sushi was okay, nothing to die for. Lots of variety, don't eat their fruit sushi. It's gross. Hand roll are full of rice instead of the toppings. Their sashimi... I high doubt is fresh. Well their tuna sashimi wasn't but salmon was great.

Service... oh my. Came during 2ish and their were 3 groups of people. There were moments where there was no staff to be seen... more

This was our favourite sushi place until our last visit when the shrimp weren't cleaned properly, the sushi was soaking wet (with what I have no idea), and there was hair in our tempura. When we complained, they acted like they did nothing wrong and kept talking in their own language in front of us. Then they expected us to pay for our meal, giving us $5 off. There are much better sushi places!

I don't have much to say about this place, except for overpriced. There is no way, it's necessary to spend $22 for an all-you-can-eat dinner. At most places you can find a sushi box for $14-$16, which is more than satisfying, or an all-you-can-eat for less than $22. Their sushi choices didn't blow me away. They didn't have different items than what other places offer. The ambiance is ok. My... more

Don't go to this place. Went on a Friday night price was $22.99 for adults and kids were $10.99, it was way over-priced for kids. For the prices they charge maybe having something other than plastic cutlery would be appropriate. Food was average.

Service was terrible, very unfriendly. Our party was five people including two children and an automatic gratuity was added to the bill. We couldn't... more

Went here for the first time for an all you can eat lunch. It was better than expected with a few very unique and delicious items on the menu. Everything was incredibly fresh and tasty, service was prompt and friendly.

Someone else mentioned no dragon rolls - the dinner menu is different and does have dragon rolls, more rolls than the lunch menu, sashimi and some other options.

Went to Akita for the first time with colleagues from work for lunch today. Service was prompt & friendly, food was visually appealing, fresh and tasty. Good selection of dishes at a fair price.

So nothing particuarly special about this sushi restaurant. The inside is nicely done, modern, clean lines, vivid green lights. Crowd is typical Woodbridge scene. No Dragon Rolls unfortunately.. The Rainbow Roll is the closest thing to it. The teriyaki was really good, and all the rolls were pretty basic. I went in for lunch, it was $12.99, and dinner is 25 I think. The lunch and dinner menus... more

So I've been going to this location and then they opened the Brampton location on Queen street, if it wasn't for proximity I would stick to this location. Better quality of food and bigger, less rice. Their price is low comparing with other AYCE sushi places.

I love their takes on "pringles" and spicy udon is actually spicy. Also my fav "butterfish" is fresh fresh fresh!

It's always iffy trying an unfamiliar sushi place for the first time, especially when you invite coworkers out for lunch and feel the responsibility of selecting a good restaurant. Thankfully, Akita did me proud.

The service was quick, the price was great ($12.99 All-You-Can-Eat), and the rolls were fresh and delicious.

Being a vegetarian I know I don't get the full sushi experience, but the... more

Sure the service is terrible but the all you can eat sushi is great. I am not a sushi connoisseur by a long shot, but I know when my food is fresh and prepared with care, and you get both at Akita.

Try to go before the dinner rush (5pm) and you'll have the undivided attention of the staff.

I have been to their new Brampton restaurant and found it to be vastly inferior to any other AYCE restaurant that I had been to. Dining standards must be very low in Woodbridge.
Are they charging $8.99 for a glass of plonk in Woodbridge or are they just trying to rip off residents of Brampton?

Okay, so any regular of this place will tell you they don't go to Akita because of the superb customer service and friendly wait staff...because frankly neither exist at this place. Despite the indifferent waitresses with their cold blank faces, this place is AMAZING. So what if you aren't greeted at the door with a smile or your server refuses to make eye contact with you, it's AYC Sushi and... more
